We are so lucky to live in a province that is brimming with a wide selection of on farm markets selling freshly grown produce and handmade goods. Many on farm markets, ourselves included are proud members of the Ontario Farm Fresh Marketing Association (OFFMA) which has been a resource to farm marketers for decades. The organization is made up up of passionate Ontario farmers that work tirelessly to promote, educate and support Ontario farms. They are some of the most hardworking people we know and it is an honour to know them and call them friends. They have supported us from the very beginning and we are constantly learning from them. Our business has been shaped by the advice, words of encouragement and experiences we have had with these wonderful business owners, farmers and bakers.
The annual OFFMA Banquet takes place during the Ontario Fruit and Vegetable Convention in Niagara Falls. This year we had the honour of being awarded the 2018 Ontario Farm Fresh Farm Marketer of the Year. Being recognized by our peers and such an esteemed group of people is very humbling. We are blessed to be working in such a supportive, vibrant and innovative industry.
Our incredible customers and staff are truly the heart of our business. Without your dedicated and loyal support we would not been able to grow and offer what we do. We are overwhelmed with joy thinking about the amazing people we have got to know over the years as staff, customers and friends. Building relationships with you, being a part of your family celebrations makes our hearts so happy. Our family has been farming for 105 years on our farm and we could not be more proud to be continuing these agricultural traditions for the next generations.
In celebration of this wonderful recognition we will be planning lots of fun events, sales and activities throughout the season! Follow along and join us in our Farm Marketer of the Year Celebrations!
